Critic Reviews for One Mississippi Season 1

All Critics (45) | Top Critics (26)

Mississippi... may not trend right away, but it's an example of how popular fare can inspire you to go off the main thoroughfare and discover some delightful, often neglected, treasures.

Sep 6, 2016 | Full Review…

Despite the famously particular dialogue style in which Cody works, the pilot feels very much like Notaro's stand-up: dry as a bone, often touching, hilarious in unexpected moments, specific and absurd.

One Mississippi is hardly a comedy, and it's not really about trauma. It's about recovery, and you'll come away from it feeling healed.

Sep 12, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

All of these memories, painful and enriching, give the series a density equivalent to many dramas. Yet One Mississippi never sinks too far into the muddy river water thanks to its buoyant bits of comedy.

Like Notaro's stand-up, One Mississippi leads with the tragedy-but it's the way it guides viewers through that tragedy that makes it memorable.

One Mississippi... is off-center enough to make it a good fit with other Amazon comedies.

Sep 8, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Comedy is tragedy plus time. [Tig Notaro's] latest project, Amazon's "One Mississippi," finds comedy during one of the darkest periods of Notaro's life.

Nov 3, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

Anyone who has been exposed to Notaro's stand-up will recognize her wry, deadpan delivery, and it works well here.

Jul 31, 2018 | Full Review…

It stands toe-to-toe with Amazon's Transparent in terms of artistry and sheer emotional beauty and is different from most "sad-coms" in that it's about actual grief and not modern existential crisis.

Dec 20, 2017 | Full Review…

[Tig] Notaro's loneliness gives way here to some of the most tantalizingly specific family drama I've ever seen on television.
